Drowned in Sound

Whatever happens next, she can rest assured safe in the knowledge that together with her beau they've conjured up one of 2012's - or any other year in recent memory - finest debuts.

80
The 405

Whether it be a victory for production, a victory for collaboration or just a brilliantly bizarre fantasy, this chamber will be an alluring and magical sanctuary the next time it decides to fling open it's doors.

80
NME

Here are two people who already see the best in each other, and with ‘Melody’s Echo Chamber’ they’ve tried to make everyone else see it too. It shows.

78
Beats Per Minute

Delving slightly further into Prochet’s pop sensibilities, and treading the line between Keenan influenced and Keenan knockoff, this debut record sits comfortably in its sonic pocket content with the strides it’s already made rather than opting for any sort of notable diversity.

74
Pitchfork

For a collaboration between a songwriter and a producer who helped push her to the outer limits of her vision, Melody's Echo Chamber is an impressively immersive debut.

70
Under The Radar

Stereolab, Cocteau Twins, and Broadcast are key reference points here, though Prochet ensures that the only voice you'll recognize in the Chamber is hers.

70
Consequence of Sound

The album is akin to an Inception-style dream within a dream, where there’s a risk of never waking, instead remaining trapped in limbo. 

70
musicOMH

It’s a frequently beautiful record that’s a perfect soundtrack to the drawing-in of nights and the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot.

70
PopMatters

 Prochet’s vision is unique and fully realized thanks to bold experimentation and confident execution.

Not a disappointing listen at the slightest. This album turned out to be a really fun and dreamy listen. It's definitely more blissful than Lonerism with really fragile vocals and atmospheric instrumentation. One of the more impressive debut albums of the year.

Favourite tracks: I Follow You, Crystallized, Bisou Magique, Quand Vas Tu Rentrer, You Won't Be Missing That Part of Me, Some Time Alone, Alone
